I’m Renee, a South Louisiana wedding photographer striving to create blissful experiences and timeless images. As a former CPA, I live for organization, but my secret power is handling chaos with grace on wedding days. From rounding up rowdy wedding parties to bustling dresses, I’ve got your back - without missing a shot.

She made everything so easy by being organized with a calm presence! She remembered to capture every single detail I mentioned!

Alaina & Andrew | A Winter Wedding Celebration at the James Grace House

Alaina summed up weddings in 2020 perfectly: “I highly recommend wearing your wedding dress twice!” My couples who have tied the knot in the past year have show so much grace and joy despite all the obstacles they faced. Alaina and Andrew quite literally split their wedding day in half. This blog post has no ceremony photos, because they actually got married last May on their original wedding date! You can see their Lafayette ceremony here. Although I would argue that they had a BLAST at their ceremony too, last weekend they finally were able to do all the fun stuff: getting ready with their closest friends, eating some delicious south Louisiana food (bet they never knew they’d serve gumbo at their reception when they originally chose a May date!) and dancing the night away!

Andrew and Alaina, your joy and love was infectious last Saturday. I wish you both many many more happy years of dancing and laughter together!
